Why I think the trade for Anthony Gose is a good one for the Tigers
A player, but a legitimate major leaguer.
Travis was named as the Tigers' top prospect earlier in the day by Baseball America, but that is a bit of a reach. Stephen Moya should have been No. 1. He is a second baseman, despite the Tigers' recent moving him to center field. He is undersized in regard to height, but does have an upside, which includes surprising power.
Gose is not much older than Travis. Less than a half year. He is far more MLB ready and probably has a higher ceiling.
